I just found out that you can only download the SPARC binaries and you have to get the Intel OE through the mail in a media pack. I guess though thought they were losing money on it and stopped latting people download it. Oh well, thanx for the help anyway. I guess i'll just use Linux.

Later

Yes, Sun is not going to support / distribute the Intel binaries for Solaris any more... not making enough money on it (they make most money from corporations, which usually buy their hardware anyways). That means that when Solaris 9 comes out, there will be no Intel version at all.

I believe they're also discontinuing the source-sharing programs as well...

Darn shame too...
